“Daisy, like Barbra Streisand, has a fully developed vocal talent at a young age. This girl has the gift of communication.”

Mark Murphy

Alex Curtis has a multifaceted career as a pianist, composer, arranger and educator. He has worked in many different genres which stems from his interest in all styles of music which began at an early age. A skilled composer and arranger, Alex has worked with several top vocalists including Beth Hirsch (Air), Katina Kangaris, Daisy Chute, Noemi Nuti and Ana Silvera. In 2012, Alex collaborated with Ana for a ground breaking sellout series of concerts at the Roundhouse in London. For this, he arranged Ana's songs for choir, small band and string quartet to much critical acclaim.

Dasiy Chute is the real deal, equally at home singing in diverse settings such as on Radiohead's latest album, 'A moon shaped pool,' or platinum selling vocal quartet 'All Angels,' and her jazz skills have been lauded by many, such as the late great Mark Murphy, jazz singer and six time Grammy nominee, who said “Daisy, like Barbra Streisand, has a fully developed vocal talent at a young age. This girl has the gift of communication.”
